‘The Future is Now’

Do you have what it takes to be an artist? A job ad should say that you need to be a self-starter, create a portfolio and be good at networking. College is a plus. Fame and compensation are negotiable. And, oh yeah, have creative ability. Then, once you are a professional artist, repeat constantly. The Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University and Louisville Visual Art are helping high school art students learn what it takes to make art a career. “The Future is Now” coupled a student with a local professional artist. The six-week mentoring program started on May 30 and is ending with an exhibition of individual and collaborative work created during the program.
